Fresh produce is grown in volunteer-led community gardens such as Bay Life Church.
ECHO provides each client with twelve outfits and three pairs of shoes. Children receive two new pairs of socks and underwear or diapers.
Depending on the nature of the emergency, ECHO’s clients can receive household items such as:
- small appliances

ECHO also offers a wide array of services for families and individuals.
ECHO has excellent resources in place to help you if you have lost your income. It could be that you need to finish high school or get help creating a resume. You may have been affected by the death of a family member who was the main bread-winner in your family and you have not worked in some time – whatever the reason, we are here to help get you back on your feet again.
